I tried several browser addons for various browsers and can't find simple addon that will remember filled form when I click on some button, and later restore it on the same page on some another button click.

To clarify I am developing web application with pretty complicated forms, and when testing it's tedious and boring enter all that data so many times.

You can use Lazarus: Form Recovery, a chrome extension.

Autosaves everything you type so you can easily recover from form-killing timeouts, crashes and network errors.

Ever had one of those “oh $*#@” moments when you've finally finished filling out a long form, and hit submit only to see an error message? And when you hit the back button, the form was blank... If so, you know you need Lazarus. And if not, you have a chance to install Lazarus before disaster strikes!

Lazarus saves everything you type so if the worst happens you can recover the whole form by simply clicking a menu item. The data can be encrypted and is saved on your machine so you know it's safe.

Similar extension is also available for firefox.

I tried Lazarus before and for some reason it doesn't save my form, maybe becouse it has a 3 pages and 3 submits –  Antonio Bakula May 13 '12 at 7:38
    
You should mention that in your questions. When you submit question, please mention what have you tried already. It saves all troubles –  user May 13 '12 at 7:39
    
sorry, you are right, my apologies. But I tried only in Firefox, now I installed Lazarus in Chrome and it works ! Thanks –  Antonio Bakula May 13 '12 at 7:43
